Journey Home

I'm here to lose weight, and get back to my myself, the way I think of myself although I haven't been thin for a very long time.
I have 3 kids, all of whom have left home, and have been amazingly happily married for over 25 years.
I have never done much online before, and am looking forward to meeting people who share the same weight loss goals. None of the other members of my family are overweight, although my daughter diets with me.

Fitness Minutes: 25,162

My Goals:
My long-term weight goal is to get to a healthy weight of 140.
My short-term goal is to be under 240 lbs by Christmas 2009.
My exercise goal is to exercise every day for a minimum of 40 min.
My stay active goal is to do hard active work (either out or in) for a minimum of 1 hour 5x/week

My Program:
I am keeping a 1200-1600 cal/day range depending on my physical activity.
I am logging my food each day.
I am using WATP for cardio, and using free-weights, bench and ball for strength 3x/wk

Personal Information:
I have been happily married for over 30 years to the one guy in the world who is totally perfect for me.
Our lives totally changed in May 2011 when our eldest son was diagnosed and operated on for a massive brain tumor in his brain stem and reaching into the cerebellum. He is slowly recovering. Hubby is helping him inSudbury while I hold down the home fort in Ottawa.
My son spent months in ICU and then over a year in the hospital. Stress eating and sitting on my butt in the hospital has resulted in my gaining weight.
Now we are in a routine and I am determined to lose the weight and be a healthier, fitter lady for whatever the next thing life throws at me is!

Other Information:
I have a wonderful cat named Neiko and my hubby has a German Shepherd named Beowulf .

Worry is the darkroom in which negatives are developed.

Hey Shirley - I just saw your question about the RV -- sorry, my participation has not been much this month. We have an RV big enough for the entire family and 2 more. The RV sleeps 10 - The dining table folds into a bed, the couch folds into a bed, there is a Full Size or Queen Size bed in the master bedroom and there are 4 bunk beds in the back by the bathroom. It has a pantry, stove, shower, etc. We love it. I would like to get a bigger one without the bunks now that the kids are getting older and make that area a living room for my DH and I.
